The world is a global village, almost everyone is investing in cryptocurrency hence there is a need for one to know more about the top six DEXes for investment in crypto and it is pertinent to at least know what a DEX means before venturing into the top six DEXes in crypto.

What is DEX?

DEX is a decentralized crypto exchange run by code from peer to peer, it is a system whereby people can trade cryptocurrency without a middleman and every transaction is generally written on a blockchain run by a decentralized application (DApps). DEX has no middleman when it comes to trades and this is because all trades are done between two peers with developers who manage the platforms and all aspect of DEXes. In getting involved in the DEX crypto exchange, one must bring into cognizance that a team of developers is always involved in working on the DEX code and developers may also get involved in the addition or subtraction of coins for trade.

It is also of utmost significance to note that the DEX crypto has outperformed its counterparts by five times this year with an average increase of 240% according to DeFi Pulse. While centralize exchange tokens have only increased with just a figure of about 44% this year, the DEX token has increased with an overwhelming figure of 241% this year.

According to reports, most top DEX has a major upgrade plan. This indicates that every major DEX will soon undergo scalability, upgrade, driving up interest, liquidity incentives in their tokens which will in turn be very profitable and beneficial to investors. In as much as investing in DEX is Paramount for growth, it also has its own set back which includes; the inability to reverse a transaction once it is made hence an individual must be fully convinced about indulging in DEX crypto before fully getting involved in it. Another set back is that it is no customer service, it is run by a peer to peer code and each investor is directly linked to his peer.

In the year 2020 and with the rise of Ethereum, DEX has grown in trading and in just last week it spiked with about 68% and about $2.4 billion was swapped on those exchanges. Dune analytics also showed that about $448 million worth was also swapped in the last 24 hours. DEX platforms on ethereums have exploded with demands from investors and every week DEX volume keeps swelling higher and higher and this will introduce us to the top five DEX platforms.

Balancer is an automatic market maker, with a decentralized exchange and a liquidity pool code of conduct that allows users to provide liquidity for multiple assets that keep occurring at the same time. Balancer enables users to earn fees on their Ethereums which serves as an investment. Investors can deposit their portfolios into balancers self re-balancing LPs and earn as multiple users trade against their portfolios. Balancer price stands at about $25.26USD and one unique aspect of the balancer is that, instead of paying fees to portfolio managers to rebalance a portfolio, you can collect fees from traders who rebalance your portfolio thereby making you earn a return for providing liquidity as a trader swap between assets in the liquidity pool and this is not to also rule out that balancer charges a percentage on each trade being made and this charges goes entirely to the pool liquidity providers.

It also empowers liquidity providers and traders to get involved and participate in their market place that is accessible to everyone for investment.
